Default 2003 Rio Smoke from under glove box

Driving down the freeway the other day in my 2003 Kia Rio with 112k miles on it and white smoke started coming out from under the glove box. Checked the engine and no smoke from under the hood. Fan (AC/Heating) stopped working. Anyone know if it's the fan switch or motor or something else? And how would I go about replacing that?

Regards,
Joshua

I would definitely say it was the fan motor. I would have to get back to you on how to replace it, I've never really looked for it on my Kia.
